UF Tenure and Promotion Guidelines

All applications for promotion, tenure, and/or permanent status at the University of Florida will be processed in the Online Promotion and Tenure (OPT) System.

2019-2020 Promotion and Tenure Information:

  • 2019-2020 Guidelines (PDF)
  • The 2019-2020 Application template is in MYUFL. Web Browser should be set to allow pop-ups.
    • Log onto MYUFL
    • Go to Main Menu>My Self Service> UF Faculty Promotion and Tenure> Promotion and Tenure Packet> Packet Template with Activity.
    • The Template will open as a Word file, with some sections auto-populated with the candidate’s information.
  • NOTE: The Assistant In series in IFAS, the Health Sciences and the College of Law must use a different Template.  These promotions do not use the OPT system and are decided by the relevant dean.
